I do a weekly podcast called “Gleeman and The Geek” but never actually link to it here because … well, the show is mostly about the Minnesota Twins.
This week’s episode has the usual Twins talk, but also includes a whole bunch of discussion about tonight’s MLB draft and a special guest with a first-hand scouting report on stud prospect Miguel Sano.
I figured it might be of more interest to the average (or at least non-Twins fan) HBT reader than a usual episode, so give it a listen:
Gleeman and The Geek, Episode 44: Draft Talk and Scouting Sano
Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez exited Sunday afternoon’s game against the Rays in the 10th inning due to a hip/groin issue. Manager Aaron Boone said Sanchez is likely headed to the 10-day disabled list, MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports.
Sanchez went 0-for-4 with a walk before departing. He appeared to suffer the injury running to first base when he grounded into a 6-4-3 double play in the 10th inning. On the season, Sanchez is batting .190/.291/.433 with 14 home runs, 41 RBI, and 36 runs scored in 265 plate appearances.
Austin Romine replaced Sanchez in the 10th inning and will handle the bulk of the catching responsibilities while Sanchez is out.
